Lifelong Scholar Society

In establishing the Lifelong Scholar Society, Florida Institute of Technology recognized the still unfulfilled demand for educational and intellectual stimulation for adults who are beyond the traditional university years. feffThe Lifelong Scholar Society allows mature adults to enjoy the intellect as well as the college experience found here at Florida Tech. We offer non-credit courses in a welcoming atmosphere in state-of-the-art facilities. The lectures, lasting 90 minutes, are taught by Florida Tech professors and vary weekly. Lecture topics include such varied subjects as foreign policy, music, art, history, culture, science, films, literature, philosophy, and current events. feffLectures will be presented during the academic Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Summer lectures begin May 7th and are offered on Tuesdays from 10:00am -11:30am
